What is Jeevan Pramaan or Digital Life Certificate?



The jeevan pramaan certificate is the proof that pensioners must submit to the relevant and authorized pension distributing agency (bank or post office) once a year, to certify the pensioner is alive. Providing the jeevan pramaan certificate, helps the pensioner receive the pension to the savings bank account.

Previously, the pensioner needed to be present before the pension disbursing agency to obtain the life certificate. This process was later deemed inefficient; as being physically present in front of the pension disbursing agency was a major challenge. 

Many pensioners move to different cities post-retirement; making it difficult to be present on the given day.

The government has identified this problem and has taken some major initiatives to ease the process of distributing life certificates and making the transfer of life certificate for pensioners, seamless.

The digital life certificate is one such initiative by the Government of India, which aims to ease the process by digitizing the method of securing a life certificate.

Jeevan pramaan is a biometric-enabled online service for pensioners; which aims to streamline the process of receiving life certificates, making it a hassle-free process for pensioners.
